When customers visit our showroom, we ask a few simple questions to guide them to the proper power blower.

What is your application?

Consider your primary use and buy accordingly.

Handheld Blowers provide lightweight, compact and consistent power. If you are only clearing grass clippings off your driveway, patio and other common areas, this product is ideal. Handheld blowers are affordable and Echo offers quality parts and warranty.

BackPack Blowers handle leaf removal far better than the smaller counterparts. Echo backpack blowers do everything handheld blowers do plus quickly move leaves and debris across your turf.

What are the differences between handheld and backpack blowers?

The primary difference between a handheld and backpack blower is power. If handheld blowers are a garden hose, then backback blowers are a fire hose. For small chores and everday use, a handheld blower is great. However, when you have a lot of work to do a backpack blower increases your productivity and takes the stress out of your arms.
